Due to an ever increasing demand for our services, we are always looking for experienced and caring Nannies from all regions of New Zealand. Nannies can choose to be full or part-time. Being a Night-Nanny is a rewarding, well-paid job and can fit around study, existing work and family commitments
Do you have what it takes to be a Night-Nanny?
We are looking for a range of skills in our Night-Nannies:
1) A passion for caring for newborns, babies and small children.
2) A kind, gentle and empathetic personality (both for babies & their parents).
3) Lots of experience with newborns, babies and small children.
4) Relevant childcare qualifications (we will also provide you with Night-Nanny training & help those with lots of experience gain the necessary qualifications).
5) A current first-aid certificate (we can also help you with this)
6) All our Nannies must have a clean police record.
What do Night-Nannies do?
A Night Nanny will usually arrive at a client’s home at 9pm and take sole charge of their baby from then until 7am the following morning - they will also do any of the following as required:
Settle the baby or child
Prepare and sterilise bottles
Dress and prepare the baby in the morning
Give help and advice on getting the baby into a sleep routine
Stay longer in the mornings to allow a lie-in
Guide older children to sleep through the night
Give advice on breast-feeding
Night-Nannies are not responsible for domestic cleaning or laundry.
Who are your Night-Nannies & what qualifications do they have?
All our Night-Nannies have been carefully chosen by us because of their combination of qualifications, relevant experience, and passion for what they do. All our nannies have been carefully interviewed, references taken (and verified) and vetted by the police. We also insist that they attend our training &/or refresher courses annually. These provide our Nannies with the most up to date information, techniques and first-aid skills and help us monitor and maintain consistently high standards.
Many of our Nannies are over 35 years of age and many have had careers in Nursing, Teaching, Midwifery or another similar caring profession. Most of our Nannies are parents or grandparents themselves and this obviously brings with it invaluable experience.
*We can offer training opportunities to those with the relevant experience but without formal qualifications.*
How much does a Night-Nanny get paid & how do we pay Night-Nannies?
Our Night-Nannies are paid from $15 - 27 per hour (minimum 10 hours per booking) depending on experience and qualifications. All our Nannies are self employed and responsible for their own tax.
